GIGGITY 420 TIKTOK TREND EXPLAINED
Essentially, TikToker Giggity4204 drove followers to Google search ‘Giggity 420’ by posting somewhat of a cryptic video.
The social media star – real name unknown – screen recorded herself typing ‘Giggity 420’ into the search bar, urging those watching to also take to Google out of curiosity. Due to the nature of the video, many followers assumed that the results of the search could be explicit.
As for the actual search results (if you actually Google the name), not a lot appears on Google.
